The following table shows the amount of rice grown by a farmer in different years:

Years: | 2000 | 2001 | 2002 | 2003 | 2004 | 2005 | 2006 |

Rice grown (in quintals): | 200 | 180 | 240 | 260 | 250 | 200 | 270 |

Plot a graph to illustrate this information.

Here, we take years on the *x*-axis and quantity of rice grown on the *y*-axis.

Let us choose the following scale:

On *x*-axis: 1 cm = 1 year

On *y*-axis: 1 cm = 10 quintals

Now, let us plot (2000, 200), (2001, 180), (2002, 240), (2003, 260), (2004, 250),(2005, 200),(2006, 270). These points are joined to get the graph representing the given information as shown in the figure below.

Scale:

On x axis: 1cm = 1 year

On y-axis: 1 cm = 10 quintals
